played president obama in romney's debate appropriation, 18 electoral votes if play in a state obama won in 2008 by 4.6 points and now leading by 2.3 points in the latest average of recent polls. republican ron johnson of wisconsin, ten electoral votes at state, obama won by 14 points last time and now leading by 2.3 percent. democrat mark warner, obama woman the 13 electoral votes by 16 points four years ago and now is tried and democrat part udall of colorado, obama won nine electoral votes by nine points and the race now is dead even. senator portman, the state most people think may decide the race and that is ohio, the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in your state and they also note they have 137 campaign offices around the country but the romney camp has only 39. >>guest: well, you mentioned first of all the real clear politics average in ohio being 2.3 percent in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9 percent. that is because the polls are closing. the latest poll was this morning in ohio by the ohio newspapers, showing the race is a dead heat. t
ago and now is tied with romney. and, democrat mark udall of colorado, obama won the 9 electoral votes last time by nine points and the race there is now dead even. senator portman, let's start with the state i guess most people think may decide the race, that is ohio. the obama camp says they have the big edge in early voting in your state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country, and the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris, first of all, you mentioned the real clear politics average in ohio, 2.3%, in the president's favor and now it is 1.9%, actually because the polls are closing, the latest poll, by the ohio newspapers, showing the race a dead heat. and that is certainly what i feel. i also feel like momentum is on our side. i have been at 6 rallies over the last week and at about a dozen centers around the state and energy and enthusiasm is on our side this year and it is interesting to watch. but, we were down 5 to 10 points before the debates and after the debates, we are about dead even and it is moving our way. >> chris: senator warner, your stat
close. slight romney lea now with the rasmussen poll. people could get turned off and not want to vote for somebody, if they are bombarded with negative ads. do you think romney made the right call with the timing of suspending the campaigning? >> greg: i guess so. makes sense. more about the media using the storm as a way to pollster obama. bolstering obama through like a full charm offensive. first, he will be there with the shres rolled up. then the tide will be gone. then the jacket by the third day. the fema offensive in boxers doing a briefing. i think a lot of this coverage is frightening. to the kids at home, don't be scared. monsters in the sky only come down to eat you if you talk back to your parents. >> eric: you make a good point, bob, turn-out. clearly across the board, you hear people saying a high turn-out would benefit president obama. >> bob: yeah. >> eric: a storm will put a damper on turnout. >> bob: probably not seven days from tomorrow. but damper on turn-out for people voting early. >> kimberly: maryland. >> bob: they're turned out already. >> dana: people who do
's votes -- obama has been losing some of the women's vote to romney. >> rebalancing, the first debate not that mr. mourdock said anything -- it is obvious what he was thinking. on the other hand, what he was thinking clearly is that rape much less important than preserving a life, and for a lot of women, saying that rape isn't all that important is a very unfortunate thing. romney has disagreed with them, but he has not taken back the ad he's running for mourdock. >> every time you watch the cable this shows now, you see someone from planned parenthood, or another group pro-abortion or so forth. the obama people are running with this ball, colby. will it have legs? >> i think it will have an impact. it calls attention to paul ryan, who shares the same view that there should be no exception for rape, abortion in case of rape or anything else, except that ryan's principled position gives way to politics and he is willing to buy the mitt romney position that there should be exceptions. think people made up their minds on this issue years ago? >> they have, but it is a matter of getting p
to give romney a chance to win. >> romny is it way ahead in the popular vote and that is worth somethingine in the electoral college situation . in the battle of early voting and late momentum. i rather be romney. it gives hum a shot at state that is obama. wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire and maybe even nevada can get back in there because the republican candidate is doing well. that's the way you play with the map. if you have to cede ohio. you are cashing in and realization that for a president who got 56 percent of the female vote as the nonincumben in a two gender race is significant. >> doug, kelly ann mentioned new hampshire and ohio and iowa and wisconsin. and so, so, obama's barely ahead in some of those state not at 50 percent. that is dangerous for the territory. >> it is and that's why you will see governor that obama is going to raise questions about romney next week because it is very hard if not impossible for him to get 50 percent. he has to discourage the undecided from voting for romney. that is a win for the president if they stay home. he will need tv effor
out the vote. at mitt romney's own excited troops. the gush of tv ads inundating the swing states. both sides with cy war and romney forces call charge, we're winning, join us or be left behind. if you don't vote we could have bush versus gore all over again. the economy, stupid. friday the last jobs report before the election. last month, it gave the president a boost. will the october number matter more? i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us today, "time" magazine's joe klein. the bbc's katty kay. cnbc's kelly evans. and "the washington post's" david ignatius. first up, we're staring down at the wind tunnel now but historic perfect political storm in the coming nine days of this campaign. and these closing days when we played out in mind games on both sides. the president saying he jist wants to hold on -- he just wants to hold on. >> what we have is a lead that we've maintained throughout this campaign. and we are going to just continue to drive home the message that there are two fundamentally different choices in this election. about where we take the country. chri
for mitt romney in michigan. then a discussion on early voting in the 2012 elections. >> you consider that a while ago no one would agree to carry around a tracking device but now we carry around cell phones that you can track. and all our e-mail stored on a server like google. so it's interesting we as a society have given our information out. >> we were looking into cyber and cyber security and cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace the environment of people, machines and networks as a new do main of war and we realize that maybe one in 1,000 people understood what cyberspace was and the degree and depth of the vulnerabilities and what we're trying to do is take pieces of it and explain the fundamentals and the idea is everybody from my mom and dad to congress and people around the country can understand and so maybe start the process of coming up with ways to defend cyberspace better. >> cyberspace vulnerabilities monday night on the communicators on c-span2. >> president obama was at the washington headquarters of the federal emergency management agency to discus
obviously if early voting is affected, it's going to affect the president. if, you know, romney sticks to cue and says something horribly off-key and politicizing it and as you just pointed out at the top of the hour, he has been on record against federal disaster relief. >> the problem with trying to get rid of fema is that the local officials are embroiled in this disaster themselves. >> stephanie: right. >> they do have emergency channels but they don't have the overview that federal officials would have to be able to drop in supplies or personnel and they just don't have the numbers and the resources so while it is admirable to say you know, we want to give the states more -- it is not reasonable. in the best-case scenario, did is just not possible to take care of all of those people. on the ground level. >> he wants to have a katrina before he's even in office. >> pretty much. >> see how much better i am than george bush. i'm not even president yet. ha ha, ha, ha. >> stephanie: exactly. you know all of the republican
the electoral college and mitt romney wins the popular vote. that is possible with the scenario we see now. >> woodruff: dan, the pew poll also shows that the voters who favor governor romney say they are more interested, more likely to definitely turn out to vote than are those who are favoring the president. >> yes, and that's a very important indicator. and another factor in that, that same poll shows that republicans are more enthusiastic about voting for governor romney. but earlier in fall, a higher percentage of republicans said they were voting against president obama. today a higher percentage of republicans, a majority say they are voting for governor romney. there has has been a change in enthusiasm. judy, i think one question that every pollster and every analyst i've talked to recently is trying to figure out is what will the composition of this electorate be? will republicans equal democrats in the number... percentage of the vote? what will the percentage of white voters be versus nonwhite voters? because this is so close, all of those questions are vitally important. we can
. he wants them to think romney is a bad guy and he wants them to vote against romney for reasons having to do with romney's character, not romney's policies. >> steve: all right. read all about it john podhoretz. thanks very much. straight ahead. the father of a navy seal in benghazi sending a powerful message directly to president obama. >> my son and the others died heroes and it's better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward. >> steve: as the president refusing to answer questions about the deadly attack. congressman is not giving up. he is here. this is being called a monster historic storm. we showed out rain and wind and check out snow in north carolina. live reports up and down the coast in two minutes. honey, thehave e 55 inch lg... [ mom ] we already have a tv. would you like to know more abo it? yeah, but let me put my wife on speaker. hi! hi. it's led and it has great picture quality. i don't know... it's ultralim... maybe next year. you cod always put it on layaway and pay a little at a time. alright. we'll take it! ah! i love you! hmm! ah
to vote, and then she said i don't care who you vote for, as long as it's for obama. >> bill: the romney campaign has shifted to ohio. lots of changes due to the storm. james hullman from political is on the trail joining us this morning on our news line from mansfield, ohio hey, james good to talk to you again. >> good to talk to you and peter. >> bill: i guess your schedule changes by the mitt huh? how are they doing it? just hour before hour or what in >> it's really difficult because you can't just fly somewhere and get to an event. >> bill: yeah right. >> the ramny campaign last night cancelled a new hampshire rally that was scheduled for tomorrow. and the press corps already booked our hotel rooms, so that's one of the reasons it becomes distressful. senior romney officials their big concern is they feel like they have had gains in new hampshire and polls showed that polls were starting to move their way. and now they won be able to campaign there more this week. and they are forced to campaign more where they don't get as biggest bang for their buck. and they thi
for something different. >> i'm going to vote for romney. i'm going to get rid of obama. he's been there four years and did not do what he said he would do. this is not change. this is the same old thing. >> dean thinks president obama has led the country down the wrong path. he is not alone. louisiana has voted republican for decades. aaron is an environmental activist. louisiana is home to almost half of the nation's wetlands, but they are being destroyed by canals built to serve as oil and gas wells. >> not enough people care. not enough people are demanding action from politicians. not enough people are demanding changes to where we get our energy from. that's one of our largest challenges. >> since 2005, over 340 square miles of wetlands around new orleans have vanished. experts believe this played a major role in the devastation of hurricane katrina. they warn of more disasters ahead due to climate change, but that was not a subject during the presidential debates. >> the no one talked about climate change. we had three debates and not a single mention of climate change. the first time
in half. i've done some math, can you see where mitt romney makes up some six to eight million votes. john mccain lost by ten million votes, he could pick up a whole bunch of votes in the nonbattleground states. let's go to our battleground map. i'll show you how easy it is. we have the president winning in virginia, wisconsin is a state that just feels on the ground is something that leans toward the president. now you just give him new hampshire, and he sits at 270, that's with giving romney ohio, that's with giving romney florida. that's with giving him iowa. that's with giving him colorado. that's this issue of the battleground versus the popular vote. >> more to come from chuck todd. thank you very much. we'll be back in a couple of minutes with him. i want to get to our battleground governors in a minute. but i want to start around the table with our roundtable. i mentioned rachel maddow is here from msnbc. carly fiorina, david brooks of the "new york times," ej dionne of the "washington post." i feel like the final stretch is going to be dominated by the fight over the economy. it's
plausible possibilities. right now president obama can safely count on 201 electoral votes. that isunchanged from yestday. romney can safely count on 191. that is changed. that has changed because north carolina, and let me bring this up today here. north carolina was moved to the tossup category just yesterday. that accounts for the 15 votes that moved away. so where he had at 206, 206 to 201, now 191. and let's turn no to of romney who needs to win north carolina. he is still up in the olls by a gnificant mrgin, but four points yesterday it was more than five. we have that. romney would need also to win, just as before, the state of florida, 29 votes. let's get that. and he is up two points in florida. he also needs virginia where he is up by one point. let's go there. he is building 248. colorado, where both candidates are tied up right now 48-48. we will give that to governor romney as well. we will move that into his column, 257. president obama right now is up by two in iowa, what the purpose of this scenario we will assumed that governor romney wins. i'm sure you won't argue. he also
of the storm will have passed enough for people not to be impeded in terms of their ability to vote. i hope that's the case in other parts of the country. we hope this won't impede people to go out and vote. >> thank you very much. both mitt romney and barack obama have suspended their schedules just days before the voters make their choice. for more on the storm's impact on this race, i'm joined by the bbc north america editor in florida where president obama was supposed to be campaigning today and bridgette in cleveland, ohio, the state where governor romney was supposed to be stomping today. let's start with you in florida. i'm incredibly jealous. pouring with rain here in washington, d.c. it must feel a world away, both weather-wise and politically. >> yes, it does. we woke up here this morning thinking the president wag going to launch his campaign. we knew this was going to be a big moment with bill clinton rolling out the big guns, if you like, and that was all canceled rather suddenly just as we woke up. so it was really strange knowing he was flying back to cope with a crisis whil
will have a bright and prosperous future. bill: 18 electoral votes online in ohio. the romney team says they like that turnout of the crowd. john roberts is live from avon lake. john, good morning for you. what are you hearing from the romney team this morning? >> good morning as well. first of all, bill, there are a lot of hardy folks. people are coming out despite the rain and wind and cold temperatures. it was the beginning of governor romney's closing arguments. real change begins on day one. the change has been a new fashion. he is supposed to go from here to wisconsin, iowa, and florida. but we don't know how much of that schedule will work. it is not great to be out there campaigning while a national emergency is unfolding. we don't know how much of that schedule will be preserved, but we understand at the moment that there are no changes. the governor is addressing the storm as well and some of the critical battleground states. he's collecting emergency relief supplies that will be distributed in the state of virginia. filling up his campaign bus with relief supplies as well. th
: cooper will vote for mitt romney. peggy shannon's cookie business is that rare example of a startup that is thrived in the great recession. after just two years, she is now moving to a larger building but the economy remains her concern. >> from a professional standard you think this is a pretty big investment. are we ever going to get our money back and i'm not sure actually but i think you have to have faith in the economy and faith in america. bill: she has a positive attitude during an election season that turned increasingly bitter even when it comes to sweets. >> when we bought put the obama cookies up we have four or five people within an hour friend us on our page. there is no winning that conversation. it is a little test to have people judge you on your politics as a business owner. bill: chile is a cincinnati tradition. one week before the election nearly everyone in the packed restaurant says they are voting. this woman for president obama. >> i will vote for him again. i think four years is not long enough time to make a complete difference but i think we're on the righ
wonder how widespread do you think that view is among swing votes in iowa? do they buy the romney the register is now selling? >> we will have a better idea come it weekend when "the des moines register's" last iowa poll of the campaign comes out. by the way, it will be online saturday night in the register on sunday. a lot of people are watching this poll. you know, we are, of course, asking people what their priorities are. up until now the economy has trumped everything else. all social issues, et cetera. you know, i don't necessarily think that voters are that one-dimensional. i think they look the economy and jobs and look at their top concerns. you know, if they have any optimism at all or any faith in their candidate, they're going to have to think beyond the immediate economic issues p what else are they go to do in their presidency. i think that people have a more multi-dimensional view of the cap pain. >> let's talk media studies for a second. up until toepd everybody was talking about the election, the election, the election. now we're talking about sandy, sandy, and ta
better vote for me, because mitt romney will rein in those rights. that issue resonates very strongly around iowa. women voters can make a difference in this election. if you look at polling, the voters isong male pretty even. among women voters, barack obama has a pretty strong lead. this election in iowa and in many other states, i think, is going to be a turn out the game. can getan get thei -- who their voters to the polls on election day. barack obama, to say, i have a lead with women voters, so let's make sure we get them out on election day and let's give them a reason to show up. this is what he thinks is the reason women will show up and vote for employer. host: a story in the quad city times -- iowa is the focus of our conversation right now with my glover, a senior writer for the associated press. let's hear from david on our independent line in texas. caller: hello. i believe obama has no problem. this is the media just keeping the news going. i am in texas. i am over 60. out of my whole family there are two of us that have landlines. i get maybe 86 or so calls per month o
don't think either of them planned for this. certainly in terms of the romney campaign, early voting takes some impact but in virginia it's not the same rules. in florida there's not that much impact at all. so i don't know that it's that much of an interruption but in terms of the optics of it, you know, when you're a challenger, you don't have anything to do except campaign nour flying around and when you do so you look more commanding and presidential. so i think it's a benefit for a president as long as the response actually works. if it doesn't work, you've got a whole other situation going on in your hands. if we carry on this track, the president is in a slightly better position but we'll be back to this in a very short amount of time. >> yes. and as one who lives in new york and on the eastern seaboard, i'm very concerned. but, again, people will say, don't deal with the politics. the politics is going to determine how we respond to this disaster and disasters in the future. richard wolffe and cynthia tucker, thank you for coming on tonight. we have new video that shows a cra
absolutely believe so. this is not a battle cry for mitt romney supporters to go out there and vote for the governor. what this is is that iowa is an incredibly unique state filled with incredibly smart to voters and readers of the des moines register and other publications. we have had the incredibly in the perspective an opportunity over the past 24-30 months to take a close look at governor romney's campaign. even before that going back to the 2008 cycle, both senator obama at the time and governor romney, spending time with the editorial board. we have talked to the candidates. we have really explore the issues. is our endorsement matter? i think it does. it has been a century at least that we have endorsed a presidential candidate. it is part of our tradition. politics is indeed dna of the des moines register. we take very seriously the first in the nation status as a caucus state. we take seriously the ability to affect candidates that are not on the radar screen until after they emerge from iowa. very informal opportunity to sit down over coffee to talk about what is in front
, the ground game, who has the best get out the vote. $2 million by restore our future the super pac for romney into pennsylvania. this is more than -- this is more than a bluff. this sounds real, $2 million is real money. >> here's what's going on here, andrea, i think we have very real evidence of this. is in the nine battleground states, the ability of either candidate to move the numbers has been nearly impossible when either one of them has had some momentum, it's maybe moved their number a point or two, but -- and moved the other guy's number down a point or two but not much. we are seeing almost all of the battlegrounds at some form of a standstill, maybe moving half a point here, half a point there. where you see evidence of romney's uptick in the national polls playing out in the states or in the nonbattleground states, the ones that have been left off, pennsylvania is a classic example, minnesota, but i'm going to throw in california as well, it's all of these places where romney is now polling better, particularly in better shape than john mccain was. there has been no engagement so
romney 41%. the swing vote about 5%. when you talk about college students, they may skew a little more towards the president of the demographic has young professionals, parents and those who are noncollege in addition to college students so the real news is in 2008 president at 66% of those votes, right now 53%. that is the largest drop according to gallup any incumbent president has had with an age demographic, especially young voters. >> where this also goes to, you have the change for the youth and on employment rate. the unemployment rate if you graduated when the president was voted in or even since then continues to rise among young people. they talk about young families, they have seen no or little upward mobility in their future and they look at their pocketbooks. as far as the younger people, one of the issues is the republicans have not bee done as good of a job explaining the fiscal message. not about next year or your next credit card bill, it is the next five to 10 years of your life and that gets you into your late 20s and early 30s. >> you are exactly right. look at the
and voting to try to overcome the late advantage of momentum. megyn: romney has a lead on foreign policy and national security, which i typically also been an area in which president obama was dominating. not only has not eroded, but he is 10 points behind romney in that issue. i would like to ask you, because rather than look at the numbers, advantageous to the democrats, and so it is in this race. he says that obama leads 62% to 32%. among the early voters in ohio. one in three ohio voters has are to cast their ballot. one third of the ohio electorate, romney has a lead among those who still plan to vote, but that is a big gap to make up. >> yes, it is, but it example with an example. the other thing is this. any given republican votes at a higher frequency than any given democrat on a per capita basis. that is especially true this year because of an and enthusiasm gap. that means that the president needs to do overwhelmingly well. he needs to use the advantage in terms of organization to drag as many democrats to the polls as he possibly can. if there's a election were just on electio
at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. athat's what the plan georged allen supports... would cost our economy. newspapers called it "economically destructive." like allen's votes to give tax breaks to companies... that ship jobs overseas, his economic plan would... help big corporations, devastating the middle class. allen even voted against tax breaks for small businesses. virginia can't afford to go back to george allen. the democratic senatorial campaign committee... is responsible for the content of this advertising. look, the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country. and we face this deficit -- could crush the future generations. and republicans and democrats both love america but we need to have leadership -- leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job
of romney's sons are primarily investors in the voting machines. so let's hope we don't get another bush 2 like we did in florida where the supreme court is basically working for the corporations on top of that man tan to's genetically engineered modified food, waste water from coke's power prant. don't be surprised if cancer goes up and then everybody will be playing for obama care because the insurance companies will bankrupt everybody. here is your upper crust old witch old money that's basically blackmailing everybody with their taxpayer money for their vote. and if you think you're getting the impression that you're free, i i've got two word for you the property act. >> let's gock to the "washington post." host: chris on the democrats line. caller: good morning. i pray for everybody who will be affected by this storm. things to remember about elections that everything is local. the way this storm will affect this will be decided by local officials. for example, on september 1, 2001, there were supposed to be lecks. in new york city they postponed the election and changed the way it wo
are concerned in the middle. that romney himself should be able to win. >> can i -- voters vote for people, not parties. so romney, romney's on the ticket, not the republican party. >> i don't know. >> i want to defend gray-faced guys with $2 haircuts. >> where do you get a $2 haircut? >> the crucial gap is a marriage gap. republicans and mitt romney are doing better by almost 20 points among married people, including married women. democrats and barack obama are doing better than 20 points among single women. so that's the crucial gap here. and so that is a question of, that's how you tailor who you're trying to get. and the republicans are doing extremely well among people who want bipartisanship. among people who want some stability. they're doing well among that group. but the where republicans are falling short is among the single group where obama is doing well, remember the ad where he said government is going to help you here, help you here, republicans have not offered a counter help you. >> i want to go to chuck's point about the republican right. one thing we've seen in this ele
does it mean for early voting? governor romney's recent momentum and president obama's chance to look presidential in this final week. >>> one state already feeling the direct effect of the storm is right here just outside of us in virginia today. we're breaking down the recent success for democrats in the old dominion and what are the president's chances to do it again? good morning from a very rainy washington. it's monday, october 29th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. and it's this. a massive category 1 storm, but it's a large one. and it's bearing down on the east coast just eight days before the election. nearly 60 million people are in hurricane sandy's path one way or the other. and it stretches more than 800 miles from north carolina to maine. and as sandy barrels towards the east coast, it is already bringing heavy rainfall and sustained winds up to 85 miles an hour. now, it's not just wind and rain. as much as three feet of snow is forecast in parts of west virginia. officials estimate repairing the damage
to only 39 for romney and they're leading a robust get out the vote effort. >> come on ride the bus with us. cast your vote today. >> reporter: now, ohio's 18 electoral votes may well pave the way to the white house, but because this race is so tight, few here believe they'll know who won them on election night. >> dean, if it's so important and if in fact the ground games are so important, what's the difference in the two ground games? >> reporter: well, charlie, it's not a scientific observation but what i see is that the obama campaign is far more interested in the early voting. and the romney campaign is still in the persuading phase of this election. they're going door to door trying to get people out to early vote, but really trying to persuade them to vote either early or on election day. >> all right, thank you, dean reynolds. >>> hurricane irene cost more than $4 billion in losses when it ripped through the east coast and economists believe hurricane sandy can be even worse. >> and storms can be good for some businesses. rebecca jarvis is with us agai
this for a year. they're right. this campaign wins if it gets out votes at a more effective high rate than the romney campaign does. how does that change it if power goes out in places where people manage phone calms and charging up ipads door to door. that is what i think would have people worried. more than where the president physically can campaign. how much money do they put into tv ads people won't be seeing. >> david, i wonder if to some extent the perception of how he does with this is out of his hands. how do you gauge how a voter will feel if he doesn't have power on the third or fourth or fifth day? does he blame the power company or state's governor or make him turn against government in general and the president? what do you think, david sf. >> absolutely. not only that, but if you have places like virginia, if there's damage to centers where people vote, if people deal with trees on theirous or power outages, it takes up the attention and they don't vote. that's a big concern as dave just said. the president has his surrogates out in some states trying to get the message for
